It’s almost here! The poet-judged poetry slam on Wednesday, May 22 at 3:15 in the mastery lab.  Poetry slams are competitive but fun.  You don’t have to read your poetry and compete to participate.  You can just come to appreciate the works of your peers, hear published works by our esteemed poets and enjoy treats. To compete you need three of your original works of poetry.  The prizes are Target gift cards.  You know you want to try, and the school year is coming to an end, so have some fun!  We would love to see lots of you there, and we will make sure you get a bus pass if you need one.  Remember to come to Room 131 on Thursday if you’d like to help run the slam or if you have questions.
